Title 29 faces - Simone de Beauvoir
Description For the feminist postcard swap!

Simone de Beauvoir was a big part of my teenage literary voyage. I was (and am) a bookworm, and her Le Deuxième Sexe (the second sex) was an eyeopener for me in the early 90s.

The quote reads:
"le principal fléau de l'humanité n'est pas l'ignorance, mais le refus de savoir"

"the major flaw of humanity is not ignorance but refusal of knowledge"

Size appr. 10x15 cm
Medium: Copics, fineliner and mica watercolours (the circles are grey with a shimmer of blue - they are all the same colour, but I couldn't get a good picture of them. You just have to imagine them grey, with that blue sparkle when you tilt the card )

Based on PhotoPlog Pro v.
